Hamborg is the second-largest city in Germany (after Berlin) and the sixth-largest city in the European Union.
Hamburg's official name is the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.
Today, the harbor ranks second in Europe and sixth to seventh world-wide. Consequently, one of Hamburg's tag lines is "The Gate to the World". Hamburg is known to be one of the richest metropolitan area in the European Union, like Bruxelles and London.
